Mental Health Issues: What Really Can Be Done?

While we are increasingly familiar with statements of what should be done following another public tragedy involving someone with mental health issues, what is really possible/probable in terms of changes in public policy?

The current divisive and emotionally charged political environment suggests caution at best, and maybe inaction. But what about the impact(s) of leadership and people/communities that really have had enough?

Andrew Romanoff has significant public policy experience as well as a lead role in addressing mental health issues. We look forward to hearing his perspective about what is and can be done in Colorado regarding these issues.
